Watch your oil pressure gauge if you have one, they also come into play on some GM fuel systems. If oil pressure drops too low, or oil switch faulty, telling it that it's too low, it will shut down fuel pump also. (similar to a trip switch for accident, engine stalls, oil pressure drops & signals pump to shut off.)
Hello I'm not saying this is going to solve your problem but:::I have had about 10 fuel pumps over 20 years of being in the trade work like that and work for a day and die! be sure it is not manufacture defective!!!! manually test it! good luck! hope this helps!
